Description

The Nashua River begins at the base of the dam in Clinton and travels 37.5 miles north eventually emptying into the Merrimack river. 40% of this loop follows along side the river with a portion running through the Clinton Bluff Natural Heritage Area.

Heading east on Water Street, the parking area is just after the bridge on the left. There is a private house there but the dirt area to the left is town property and can be used to park. You could also park on Vale Street and cross the street to the trailhead.
